Mural Project:

A committee of interested members of the Richmond St. Pat’s Society and the RCHS have been working together on a project to have a mural created in downtown Richmond, on the wall of Quincaillerie Richmond Hardware.

The goal of this project is to remind everyone who lives in the area that we all belong here, have a shared history in the area, and have all contributed to the area’s development, regardless of our ethnic roots. With this reminder of what we have achieved together is the promise of what we can continue to build together by working together to achieve common goals.

We are grateful to Ville de Richmond, Canton de Melbourne, Canton de Cleveland, the MRC, André Bachand MNA for Richmond-Arthabaska and the Minister of Agriculture, QAHN, and the Secretariat for Relations with English-speaking Quebecers as one of their Belonging and Identity projects, as well as the many local businesses, organizations, families and individuals who have made this project possible.

This is an ambitious project will finally be installed this summer.
